Blue grass, headgrass

The Content Of The Article:


Due to their natural locations, bluegrass species cope well with dry conditions in the home garden, but need some lime content in the soil. In the prairie set, the early risers set the tone already in the spring. Some species are also suitable for shadier locations on the woody edge. In addition to being used in the garden, the uncomplicated and easy-care bluegrasses are also often planted as groups in public green spaces and can also be used for green roofs. The Moor Blaubras (Sesleria caerulea) also accepts wet to humid soils and can be combined well with the peat sedge (Carex davalliana) and the steppe sage (Salvia nemorosa).

To cut

A pruning of the plants is not required, but you should remove dead plant parts for visual reasons in early spring.


The most practicable type of propagation for hobby gardeners is, as with all ornamental grasses, the sharing of the clumps. This is best done in spring after flowering.

Diseases and pests

Some species (lime blue grass, Sesleria albicans) are attacked by fungal diseases. In damp locations mold can occur.
